The article Northern Ireland, along with other articles relating to The Troubles, is currently subject to active arbitration remedies, as laid out during a 2007 Arbitration case, and amended by community consensus in 2008, 2009, and 2012. The current restrictions are:
All editors on Troubles-related articles are directed to get the advice of neutral parties via means such as outside opinions.
All articles related to The Troubles, defined as: any article that could be reasonably construed as being related to The Troubles, Irish nationalism, and British nationalism in relation to Ireland falls under WP:1RR (one revert per editor per article per 24 hour period). When in doubt, assume it is related.
Clear vandalism of whatever origin may be reverted without restriction. Reverts of edits made by anonymous IP editors that are not vandalism are exempt from 1RR but are subject to the usual rules on edit warring.
Editors who violate this 1RR restriction may be blocked without warning by any uninvolved administrator, even on a first offence.
If you are a new editor, or an editor unfamiliar with the situation, please follow the above guidelines. If you are unsure if your edit is appropriate, discuss it here on this talk page first. You may also wish to review the arbitration case page. When in doubt, don't revert!
The table at "Citizenship and identity" does not add up, or is poorly designed. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:20, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
What's the issue? It doesn't have to add up, people can identify in multiple groups. Canterbury Tailtalk 11:32, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Did Northern Ireland as well as Southern Ireland become part of the Irish Free State when it was created on 6 December 1922?
Did Northern Ireland have to opt out of the Irish Free State or did it have to opt to remain in the United Kingdom when the Irish Free State was created on 6 December 1922? There appears to be some dispute. Also if all Ireland had left the United Kingdom would that not have meant that the United Kingdom would have ceased to exist as there would no longer have been a union between Great Britain and Ireland?
